Broken. Sometimes the boats break. When I first arrived in Sihanoukville there was no broken boats on the shore. So that means this boat was likely still taking tourists to the local islands. It made me wonder how safe any of the boats I have ridden on in the last two months really are.

This post is a wee bit later than normal. I had a long day of getting set up in Chiang Mai. I have already been here only one full day and I already feel I have gotten so many things accomplished. I’m really looking forward to my next few weeks here as I focus on Pixelbip and EarthtoKeir. As well as generally working on maintaining my health.

This image I had to dodge waves in order to get this angle. I’m sure people were wondering why I was holding my camera literally inches above the incoming waves just to get this shot. When I am standing the water was only ankle deep so I was not concerned with the water too much. Of greater concern was trying to use the flip out screen. The sun was so bright I could not really see the subject too well. Just vague shapes really. I did a few exposures to make sure I would end up with a shot that was framed correctly.

This image was processed in Lightroom, Photoshop, and a couple of Macphun plugins.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
